In 2008, Eurovision veteran Tamara Todevska placed tenth in her semi-final at Eurovision. But, owing to a change in rules that year, she missed out on a spot in the final when the juries chose to “save” Sweden’s Charlotte Perrelli. “It was awful for me,” she tells Wiwi. “I was so disappointed.”

But now Tamara is back providing supporting vocals for her older sister Tijana Dapcevic and the Former Yugsolav Republic of Macedonia. They compete in the second semi-final tonight. They aren’t just thinking about qualifying—they’re thinking about going all the way. “We’re aiming for Top 5 or Top 10!”

Can they do it? Are you feeling their performance? And don’t you just love Tamara?!

Here’s her Eurovision 2008 performance.

Okay she deserved to be in the final but Charlotte deserved to win! And it’s not Charlotte’s fault, she was (is) amazing!

She does not like ballads .. so musically versatile for someone who wants to be seen as an artist … perfect for this site, I guess.

Still why would she be supposed to remember Hero anyway? Sarcastic much?

Sure if we flop. We will flop together, it’s not life and death after all. It’s a fun contest

I don’t get the hype of Macedonia this year. I liked last year’s song more ^^

macedonia has an awesome song this year but its live performance and stage choreography are a hot mess. I’m 100 % sure they won’t qualify.

I can’t stand those 2!!! They’re so bitchy! And very full of themselves, I really hope it does not qualify

Tamara and Tijana are fabulously snarky.
